Distance Learning at Meadows- Week of 10/5-10/9

Good Evening Meadows Families,


Happy Fall Break! We hope that you are enjoying your time off with your families! No school tomorrow, we resume on Tuesday. October is a busy month full of virtual events from our Meadows PTSA which includes the Scholastics Book Fair and Red Ribbon Week. And, at Meadows, we'd love to encourage our families to still participate in some of our favorite October traditions showing us your virtual pumpkin carvings or decorated pumpkins, family and individual Halloween costumes and some of your fall themed baked goods. Show us how you celebrate this autumn season and the month of October on social media. Next week, we'll begin with sharing all of our baked seasonal treats!


Thank you,


Dr. Juliet Fine

Principal of Meadows

Virtual Scholastic Book Fair Starts on October 11th

We are excited to announce that our Virtual Scholastic Book Fair is just one week away, running October 11-24. There are so many great offerings for you to choose from. Our school depends greatly on the funds we raise at the Book Fair, so spread the word to family and friends. This is a great opportunity to get some early holiday shopping done and support our amazing school library at the same time!

Our goal is to sell 500 books so start checking out the catalog to see the newest titles now. See you (virtually) at the fair.

Reflections Art Contest

Meadows PTSA is still accepting entries for the Reflections Art Program, an art contest where students create an art piece based on their reflection on a theme ... I Matter Because. All Meadows Hybrid and DLA students from any grade level are encouraged to participate. The student packet containing the contest rules, online entry form, and examples of last year's contest can be found at MeadowsPTSA.org.
